Lately we’ve been sharing some very generous testimonials from our Cardio Juvenate clients where they have shared their experiences with more energy, lower blood pressure and healthier hearts. Today we wanted to share with you Deena’s experience with the l-arginine supplement Cardio Juvenate.
Getting Into “The Zone”
Deena was having some trouble getting into ‘the zone’ during her cycling class workouts. As the instructor would tell everyone to check their heart monitors to make sure they were in ‘the zone,’ Deena would wind up disappointed time and time again.
But what is ‘the zone’ and how can an l-arginine supplement like Cardio Juvenate Plus help you get there? There are basically five ‘zones’ when it comes to workouts. Each zone offers different benefits, positives and negatives.
If you’ve been to a cardio class or worked-out with a trainer, you’ve not doubt heard about getting into ‘the zone.’ Technically speaking, ‘the zone’ is where your heart needs to be to maximize your workout and give you the greatest benefits. Getting to your perfect zone can only be achieved effectively with proper nutrition, routine exercise, and a healthy cardiovascular system. One of the most talked about benefits of L-arginine is its ability to facilitate a healthy circulatory system, thus keeping your heart healthy and your cardiovascular system fit.
Healthy Heart Zone
The healthy heart zone is a zone most often found by active walkers. It is a comfortable zone, 50 to 60% of your maximum heart rate, and is comfortable to achieve. In this zone, your body will burn 10% carbs, 5% protein, and 85% fat in order to create energy. To create more energy and last longer in this zone, try some Cardio Juvenate.
This zone is a bit more intense, but still only 60 to 70% of your maximum heart rate and somewhat easy to achieve. You will burn more calories, and get tired quicker.
You’re amping up your workouts in this zone, pushing your heart rate to 70 to 80% of the maximum. This is the training zone for endurance, improves circulatory health, and increases heart rate and lung capacity. In this zone you only burn 1% protein, and 50% carbs and fat. This is the ideal zone for maximum heart benefits.
In this zone you are at 80 to 90% of your maximum heart rate. This workout is intense, extremely difficult, and done in short intervals. Your body will be taken to the limit, and thus will start to produce lactic acid. In this zone, your body will be burning mostly carbs to gain energy, some fat, and very little protein.
In this zone you are at 90 to 100% of your maximum heart rate. This zone should only be driven for after speaking to your doctor about your heart health. It should be used in extremely short intervals, perhaps one to two minutes at a time.
The zone you should be in depends on what type of objectives you’re trying to achieve with your workout. As l-arginine increases your energy and improves healthy circulation, you’ll be able to amplify your workouts and find that perfect zone for you. If you’re looking to lose weight and maintain basic fitness, you’ll want to be in the fitness zone. If you’re looking for weight loss and a bit more endurance, try to hit the aerobic zone.
